TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of Iran’s basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi condemned the crimes committed by Takfiri and Salafi groups in different regional states, specially in Syria and Iraq, and said these groups which are supported by the US have scratched the beautiful face of Islam.
Addressing a gathering in the Southeastern province of Sistan and Balochestan on Thursday, Naqdi said that the US is manipulating the Takfiri terrorists to tarnish the image of Islam and the Muslims.
He, meantime, underlined that although certain Western countries are trying to mislead the world people’s understanding of Islam and Muslims, the number of people converting to Islam is growing across the globe, including the US itself.
Iranian officials have always warned that major world powers and their regional allies are supporting and helping to the spread of Takfiri currents in the Middle-East.
They have repeatedly warned those states that are supporting Salafi and Takifiri terrorists in the region that their policy would backfire and the same groups would eventually target them as well.
“Takfiri groups are used as a tool by enemies of Islam and they seem to lack a true understanding of Islam,” Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said in a meeting with Syrian Grand Mufti Sheikh Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun in Tehran in January.
He highlighted the role of clerics in reinforcing the resistance of the Syrian nation as well as fostering unity in the Arab country, and warned against plots by enemies to incite religious and sectarian rifts among Muslims.
Boroujerdi also praised the resistance of the Syrian people against the foreign-sponsored crisis in the country.
Also in January, senior military aide to the Iranian Supreme Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi warned that Takfiri terrorists are killing Muslims for the sake of Israel’s interests in the region.
“Takfiri groups are advancing Israel’s interests in the Middle-East through violence and terrorism,” Major General Rahim Safavi said.
“Through the massacre of innocent people in countries like Syria, Iraq and Bahrain, Takfiri groups are pushing the situation in the region in favor of the Zionist regime (of Israel),” he said.
